On The Blog

On the blog in November we covered:

Using React Testing Library with a 3rd Party Component

A post showing how to use Jest and the React Testing Library for a 3rd party component, in this case the 3rd party component was AG Grid but the approach should work for any 3rd party component.

We don't use any internal information about the component and haven't had to edit it in any way to expose data-testid attributes.

Our documentation has information on how to use Jest and Enzyme to test which would give access to the internal API, if you want even more control over your testing.

Customer Case Study - Proof Trading

In the Proof Trading Case Study we sat down to learn about their business and how they use AG Grid in their real time trading platform.

Building a CRUD App with Angular and Redux

In this post Marats Stelihs shows how to build a CRUD application using Angular, Redux and AG Grid

Automatic Header Names

[Stephen Cooper] wrote a post describing the various ways that AG Grid automatically generates column header names which can help save time writing column definition code.

Dynamically Creating AG Grid Columns From JSON

Rarely, do we need to dynamically create AG Grid Columns From JSON because we normally know the data set we are working from. But it is useful to have the options open to us if we need them.


That's probably enough for the moment.
